Thank you for praying for me

I had the surgery and it went well. I now wait for a pathology report to determine for sure my nodes are negative...so far they looked good. I couldn't have asked for a better surgery. I continue to pray and it is so good for me. I am getting closer and closer to Jesus. This whole experience has given that gift.

I also have the gift of family and friends. I have rec'd so many wonderful gifts from people. I never appreciated all the wonderful people in my life...thought I did but I am so happy to have so many wonderful people. I thank God for you every day.

I write this all down - not to brag but to Never forget all that has been given to us in such a hard time.

Rob has been wonderful. How he knows how to be so good to me? I guess good upbringing! Yesterday he made a bath and even put candles in the bathroom. It meant a lot to me because only once in a while I feel bad about not having my breast. That only lasts a second because I gave it up to live an get my life back. I'm so glad the tumor is gone. I'm glad God was there to watch and help my surgeons do a good job. Having Lucas there was a great help because it reminded me of giving birth. I was so scared to give birth but because I would end up with a new little life it wasn't half bad! So I just looked at getting my surgery as getting ready for a new life with Rob and Lucas at the end of the tunnel.

Lucas is so good about helping me as well. He is always offering to do things for me.

I have to get going. I have exercises to do and prayers. Oh and eat an apple. The med constipate me. Yeah. We all know my issue with that. Well I did finally poop. LOL I am drinking a glass of prune juice in the am and pm and eating an apple a day. I am also drinking at least 3 bottles of waters. I am also meditating 1x a day and praying 2x. This stuff has been helping me a lot. I haven't had an issue with my stomach.

Going to the city I notice how good some women smell and it makes me want to check out perfume. Then I read this article in Women's Health and thought it was cool. You can look up your old time scent and get an updated version:

I'm getting excited about Fall and Sweaters! WH also had a cool article on Sweaters
A lot of the stuff was too much for most- but this scarf was cute and affordable!

Wow I'm tired now. I must go...little bit of pain now.

Now this is the D I know! I am glad to see you are getting strength from god, within yourself and from others who love you. Just by reading these last couple posts I see that strength in you. I admire you for that and pray that you continue to have that. I am really looking forward to talking to you. We keeps missing calls. I will try you this weekend.
